SALT LAKE CITY - Utah's Jakob Poeltl has just announced he will be entering the draft instead of returning to the University of Utah.

Poeltl said he has had a great time in Utah but it was time to go.

"It's been a great two years here, I would love to stay for another two more but we [friends/family] have decided it's best to go," Poeltl said.

Utes coach Larry Krystkowiak said, "I don't know how much meat is left in college for him, he's been projected as a top 10 first-round draft pick."
